Is Cantel Medical under- or over-valued?

Valuing Cantel Medical stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Cantel Medical's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Cantel Medical's P/E ratio

Cantel Medical's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 81x. In other words, Cantel Medical shares trade at around 81x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Cantel Medical's PEG ratio

Cantel Medical's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.4104. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Cantel Medical's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Shorting Cantel Medical shares

There are currently 2.4 million Cantel Medical shares held short by investors – that's known as Cantel Medical's "short interest". This figure is 20.4% up from 2.0 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Cantel Medical shares can be evaluated.

Cantel Medical's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Cantel Medical's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cantel Medical shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cantel Medical shares traded daily (recently around 468913.68015414). Cantel Medical's SIR currently stands at 5.19. In other words for every 100,000 Cantel Medical shares traded daily on the market, roughly 5190 shares are currently held short.

However Cantel Medical's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cantel Medical shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cantel Medical shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cantel Medical's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cantel Medical shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0737% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cantel Medical shares, roughly 74 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Cantel Medical.

Have Cantel Medical's shares ever split?

Cantel Medical's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 14 July 2013. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Cantel Medical shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cantel Medical shares which in turn could have impacted Cantel Medical's share price.

Cantel Medical share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Cantel Medical's shares have ranged in value from as little as $29.34 up to $89.76. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CMD.US volatility(beta: 1.54)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Cantel Medical's is 1.5416. This would suggest that Cantel Medical's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
